Looks daft as a brush. Good to see them back on the BBC.

Trailer didn't look too impressive. Seemed a bit too simplistic.

I'm imaginging an even sillier and less adult version of Bottom.



But as a Vic & Bob fan i'll be tuning in.

Checked out the trailers earlier and after being excited about this I'm now concerned I set my expectations too high.
I loved Matt Berry in 'Toast of London' but in this he just seems like his Douglas character in the IT Crowd.
I'm a Vic and Bob fan too of long standing so I will be reporting for viewing duty.

Generally love anything that Vic and Bob do, but have reservations on this one, as it contains the unfunniest 'actor' ever, Matt Berry. Watching him mug his way through another shouty performance is not condusive to comedy in my mind, so will try episode one and see what happens!

I haven't really set any expectations for it. Well apart from hoping that it's not complete and utter dross.

Filthy!

Bottom done this years ago and was much funnier . This might do for bob n Vic
What Ben Elton's last sitcom did for Ben . The last time they were funny was 1992.

Good God, that was fantastic! It sagged a bit in the last 10 minutes, but the first half had me speecnless with laughter. The fact that it has that Vic & Bob 'crapness' helps a lot. Brilliant!

Thought it was funny too...the only thing I found slightly distracting was the editing when they obviously had started laughing at their own jokes!

I noticed that too. It seemed to be made from lots of short segments stitched together. There were also cheers and applause for stunts that didn't work on the first take. Very funny though.

I lasted two minutes before giving up on it. Never was a Reeves & Mortimer fan anyway.

Me too. Silly but not funny for me, so gave up.

It was total crap, but great. I am a fan of all involved which helps.

Yeah, a really strong cast for the type of show it is.
